My first project in a long time, and still only a shop project.

I cobbled this together one day last week. I had some left over low quality (lots of voids) plywood that I put to good use. I had been collecting those clear plastic containers (pic 3), since we started buying baby food for my one year old. They are perfect for storing small hardware. The bigger stuff goes into those cans with a rare earth magnet holding a sample piece of its contents to the front.

It felt good to free up some shelf space and some workbench space (served as a holding area for lots of the hardware for what seemed like an eternity).

Any and all comments, questions, critiques are welcome.

Well done! Just label the cans so you know whats in them.

Thanks, guys! Jack, I just use a magnet to hold the hardware to the front of the can.

I like that. That turned out really nice and not on top of your bench.

Even if you don’t have babies you may find someone on in your area giving them away.. just a thought. Great project thanks for sharing.
